    I have found a section of land in the forestry to build my pumptrack.
    My question is: do you need to follow dimensions (ie Leelikesbikes), or can I just use the flow of the land as it is?
    I'll post a quick pic of the land soon for you to see what I mean...

    We've built one near me in the last few weeks and while it's not totally done, what we have built is running pretty well from what we can see. We didn't follow his dimensions at all (ours is long, like 300+ feet). But we did follow the advice regarding the size of rollers (10-12 feet long and 12-18 inches high) and berms (pick a radius, measure-measure-measure and then build). It has really worked out well. Bottom line, I think following the principles in the book are more important than the exact design...besides, its more fun to be creative.
